Self-Assessment CME

Imaging in England 2018 is qualified by the American Board of Radiology in meeting the criteria for self-assessment toward the purpose of fulfilling requirements in the ABR Maintenance of Certification Program.

There are 16 hours of SAM credits available for those who sign up for the SAM option.

ABR verification letter here.

This course will offer Self-Assessment CME credits (SA-CME or SAM): SAM's are NOT included with the registration, but are available for a separate fee.

As of January 1, 2017, American Board of Radiology (ABR) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 2 requirements: To satisfy MOC Part 2, the ABR requires 75 CME credits every three years, at least 25 of which must be credits from Self-Assessment CME (SA-CME or SAM) activities.  Podium presentations with a post-session assessment instrument qualify as SA-CME. Some organizations call these "SA-CME,” and others call them “SAM's.” Both terms are equivalent, with the number of credits determined by the ACCME or an ACCME-accredited category 1 CME provider.
